Government plans to import diesel trains that will transport more than 132,000 people in Nairobi every day.
Transport CS James Macharia said the trains will provide an alternative form of transport for the city residents and ease congestion on the roads.
Macharia said only about 12,000 people in the city use the rail transport daily.
“We will be shortly announcing how we will go about putting up the major investments. This alone will move so many vehicles from the roads and ease congestion on roads,” the CS said.
The CS said this is one of the many ways that the government is using to revamp the train commuter system and diversify public transport from public vehicles.
The CS said the public transport system is going through a major transformational process and the transformation is going in line with the implementation of the Big Four agenda.
